E9 3.0 coolant volume? C.D.?


Recommended Posts

Guest Anonymous

This is a very common question that could be answered by consulting the last page of an owners manual. Coolant capacity with heater = 12 liters. If you don't have such a resource or any kind of repair manual for a coupe, why don't you try posting this question on a bulletin board that deals with that model or 6 cylinders in general?

Coupe ? or Sedan ? what year and model?

E9 = Coupe

E3 = Sedan

3.0 = 3 liter

both coupe and sedan 3 liters use the same cooling system with the same cooling capacity.

...Thanks C.D., Gunther, I'd hate to be bugginout the troops, would just rather enjoy what is enjoyable.....say....why not install a V-tec, front drive in the old '02.......would that be more suitable?

How about a Nissan thing into an old 'BM as seen on the blogs...

Cover issues such as an old coupe is just natural on this forum, specially when they are the same year, same maker, same problem....

I would not however try to gleen advice for my wifes E46 or even an E36....to many generations apart.

Oh....did you see this?


Just havin fun, thanks guys.

By the way, I did google it, but not as well as I could have.

You better have some deep pockets if you want a coupe, if you are cheap like me, go for a E3 sedan. They are the bargain of the old BMW community and the same drive train as the coupe. True they aren't as sexy but you won't go broke buying coupe specific parts.

70 E3 2800 (Euro spec)

and three E30's and a 4 Runner parts hauler

    BMW Neue Klasse - a birth of a Sports Sedan

    Unveiling of the Neue Klasse Unveiled in 1961, BMW 1500 sedan was a revolutionary concept at the outset of the '60s. No tail fins or chrome fountains. Instead, what you got was understated and elegant, in a modern sense, exciting to drive as nearly any sports car, and yet still comfortable for four.   The elegant little sedan was an instant sensation. In the 1500, BMW not only found the long-term solution to its dire business straits but, more importantly, created an entirely new

    History of the BMW 2002 and the 02 Series

    In 1966, BMW was practically unknown in the US unless you were a touring motorcycle enthusiast or had seen an Isetta given away on a quiz show.  BMW’s sales in the US that year were just 1253 cars.  Then BMW 1600-2 came to America’s shores, tripling US sales to 4564 the following year, boosted by favorable articles in the Buff Books. Car and Driver called it “the best $2500 sedan anywhere.”  Road & Track’s road test was equally enthusiastic.  Then, BMW took a cue from American manufacturers,

    The BMW 2002 Production Run

    BMW 02 series are like the original Volkswagen Beetles in one way (besides both being German classic cars)—throughout their long production, they all essentially look alike—at least to the uninitiated:  small, boxy, rear-wheel drive, two-door sedan.  Aficionados know better.   Not only were there three other body styles—none, unfortunately, exported to the US—but there were some significant visual and mechanical changes over their eleven-year production run.   I’ve extracted t
